The word oasis is often used to describe a place where you can forget the burdens of everyday life, relax rest and renew yourself.
Egypt's oases are just refuges from the modern world, in the dramatic setting of the desert surrounded by sand and sky, the oases have a sense of timelessness, which is very rare in the 21st century. Man and nature have co-existed here since the Stone Age.
Oasis was originally an Egyptian word (from the Coptic "Waha") and Egypt's oasis are still the most varied in the world, each with a special character of its own. Wherever you stay, enjoy the tranquility of the Bedouin lifestyle.
For more adventure travel and exciting camping explore the majesty of the desert by camel or jeep safari, spend a night under the stars. Let the night skies and the silent spaces create your own personal oasis- an inner peace to take back with you when you leave.
